Popeyes® Louisiana Kitchen once again redefines the $5 price point with a real meal that won't leave guests hungry. In restaurants today, Popeyes $5 Bonafide® Big Box is back by popular demand! For a limited time, guests can feast on their choice of two pieces of Popeyes Bonafide bone-in-chicken or three Handcrafted Tenders, two Signature Sides and a Buttermilk Biscuit. The perfect blend of quality, variety and value, Popeyes is offering guests more than 300 ways to eat a real meal, all for just $5.

"The $5 price point has been the darling of the quick service restaurant industry with brands lining up to offer their version of value," said Popeyes Chief Marketing Officer - US, Hector A. Muñoz. "At Popeyes, where our Louisiana heritage sets the standard, it would be inhospitable to have a guest leave our table hungry, so we are providing a southern-style feast that will satisfy any appetite with variety that will capture any imagination!"

Traditional value menu items typically offer one item, smaller portions and few options. Popeyes is providing guests with a variety of menu options to build a full meal that won't leave them asking for more. With options like Red Beans & Rice, Green Beans, Cajun Rice, Cole Slaw, Cajun Fries and Mashed Potatoes with Cajun Gravy, there is no end to the combinations guests can create. And we've added them up - there are more than 300 different ways to combine all the spices and tastes of Louisiana cooking.

Add in their choice of Bonafide bone-in-chicken or Handcrafted Tenders and there is a whole meal packed into our Bonafide Big Box. Paired with Popeyes Lemonade Icebox Pie, guests can have it all whether they are coming in for lunch or dinner!
